The Saugus YMCA hosted its annual Super Bowl Zumba Party on Feb. 2 to support the YMCA of Metro North association’s Annual Campaign. The campaign includes fundraising events across YMCA’s in the Metro North region and provides assistance and access to essential YMCA health and wellness programs to those in need.
“The Zumba Party is one of our favorite fundraisers,” said Jen Conway, executive director at the Saugus YMCA. “Not only does it bring people from our communities together, but it ensures that no one will be turned away from the YMCA due to an inability to pay.”
The event attracted more than 100 participants and raised $1,200 for YMCA causes. Participants from Melrose, Lynn, Peabody and other surrounding communities danced to routines from ten instructors around the area.
The YMCA of Metro North Annual Campaign will continue in Saugus with YMCA 5k road race, Not a Walk in the Park, which takes place at Breakheart Reservation on April 25. The Saugus 5k race is the first in the 2020 YMCA of Metro North Road Race Series which attracts more than two thousand runners. All proceeds generate funding for YMCA causes.
